Growing Young is a CBFNC initiative in partnership with Fuller Youth Institute (FYI). Based on the research findings of FYI and its subsequent book, CBFNC is committed to helping churches better welcome and engage young people ages 15-29 and beyond.
Over the past “five” years, the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) has taken our groundbreaking research from Growing Young and journeyed with over 500 diverse congregations to help them grow young in their context. We have helped these congregations engage younger generations in ways that breathe life and vitality into the whole church through six essential strategies. Through CBF Regional Growing Young Cohort, the FYI team will journey with you and help you focus on what’s most essential in helping young people discover and love your church.
